    Marble countertop slabs are truly unique in their appearance. You only need one glance to recognize its characteristic veins. Any kitchen or bathroom decorated with marble – whether it is a countertop or a backsplash – acquires a special charm and impresses with its elegant, almost magical look. The incredible diversity of marble countertop colors, patterns, and styles allows you to choose a surface for almost any interior design. Some of its variations can even create an illusion, visually enlarging your space. However, marble is appreciated not only for its beauty. The kitchen marble countertop is a great choice for those who like cooking and baking as it is the most heat-resistant of all materials. Thanks to this property and its natural durability, it will retain its original look for many years. At Kitchen & Bath Center, we can polish the stone for you to create a glossy surface, or hone it to get a more matte finish.

    Frequently Asked Questions

    Find answers to common questions about marble countertops. We're here to address your concerns and guide you through the decision-making process.

    How Do I Care for My Marble Countertops?

    The main Achilles’ heel of marble counter tops is that they are made of a very porous material, easily absorb liquids and stains, and therefore require constant sealing. In the event of a spill, clean it up immediately with a soft cloth or sponge. If you find stains, the Marble Institute recommends a solution of 12% hydrogen peroxide and a few drops of ammonia to clean the stain with a cloth until it disappears. Also, do not place hot pots and pans directly on the kitchen marble countertop. And finally, always use a cutting board when cutting something – marble is durable but can be scratched. 

    The experts at Kitchen & Bath Center will be happy to give you advice on how best to care for your new countertops. Schedule a consultation today!

    What Are the Cons of Marble Countertops?

    • Marble is a porous material, which means that it can absorb liquids and stain from acidic substances, leaving marks.
    • Compared to granite or quartz, marble is a softer stone and is easier to scratch or chip. It also often etches in places where the sealer or polish wears off. Over time, this can lead to a worn look or the need for repair or replacement.
    • Due to its porosity, marble needs constant careful maintenance and frequent sealing.
    • Marble tends to be more expensive than other countertop materials, both in terms of the material itself and installation costs.
    • While marble can withstand heat to some extent, it is still susceptible to damage from hot pots and pans and can sometimes result in discoloration or cracking.

    How Often Should Marble Be Sealed?

    Generally, it’s recommended to seal marble every 6 to 12 months for high-traffic areas or countertops. For less used areas like marble in a bathroom or tiles on a wall, sealing might only be necessary every 1 to 2 years.

    The best way to determine if your marble needs sealing is to perform a water test. You can do this by sprinkling a few drops of water onto the surface. If the water beads up, the seal is likely still effective. If the water soaks into the marble within a minute or two, it’s time to reapply a sealer.

    At Kitchen & Bath Center, we are excited to help you bring the timeless beauty of marble into your home. Therefore, our specialists will seal your new kitchen or bathroom marble countertop immediately after installation.

    How Much Does Marble Countertop Cost?

    Marble countertop prices can vary based on their size. Typically, countertops are purchased by the square foot. On average, a square foot of marble may cost around $60, but it’s possible to find options as low as $40 per square foot for more common, low-grade marble like Carrara, or even exceed $100 per square foot for rarer or higher-grade marble such as Calacatta.

    When it comes to marble countertop installation, the costs can range from approximately $1,000 to nearly $10,000, with the average installation expense totaling around $3,000. 

    The main factors that affect marble countertop price are the type and grade of marble, its color, and availability. As for the installation, the complexity of the work, facing, finishing, labor and installation, waste removal, and other individual facts according to the customer’s requirements play a role.
